Finished Project: Christmas Ornaments

Christmas in April? Let’s just say I am finished with my first holiday knitting really early this year. (It sounds much better than saying I am almost four months late!) These are going to be package tie-on or little gifts to people who might normally just get a card.

mini hats and mittens

The mini hats and mittens were made from a Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mill kit. The yarn was unlike any wool yarn I have used before. It’s soft and very spongy. I am going to keep it in mind for a future project, assuming all of the Blackberry Ridge yarns have these qualities. It would make a very cozy sweater.

I was determined to use up as much of the yarn as possible, so after making the hats and mittens from the pattern I decided to do something different and made the little sweater and stocking. I have a little of each color yarn left still, but I am going to use it to make hanging loops on the mittens and maybe the hats. I think I am also going to bend a piece of wire into a mini hanger for the sweater.

The words in my mind were "super cute." I see that similar words popped into other minds as well. It's unanimous!
